The Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) has released its intent to list emissions from high-temperature unrefined rapeseed oil as a carcinogen under the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986.
A chemical must be listed under the Proposition 65 regulations when two of the following conditions are met:
- An authoritative body formally identifies the chemical as causing cancer [Section 25306(d)].
- The evidence considered by the authoritative body meets the sufficiency criteria contained in the regulations [Section 25306(e)].
